QPR vs Ipswich: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips-2nd January 2017

QPR vs Ipswich Town
EFL Championship
Date: 2nd January 2017, Monday.
Kick-off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Loftus Road, London.

Queens Park Rangers managed a scrappy 2-1 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux on the New Year’s Eve to put an end to their 6 match win-less run. This helped them move 5 points away from the relegation zone, but there is plenty of work still left to do. Ian Holloway, who replaced Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as head-coach in November is having a difficult time at the club. The win at Molineux is only the second from 8 matches in charge, with 6 of those being defeats.

Ipswich Town also won their matchday 24 fixture with the help of a late goal. The Tractor Boys were given a hard time at the Portman Road by the visiting Bristol City, who seem to walk away with a point. Brett Pitman came to rescue with 4 minutes left on the clock to give a 2-1 win for Mick McCarthy’s team. Ipswich are 14th in the standings at the moment, 5 points ahead of 19th placed QPR.

QPR vs Ipswich: Head-to-head

There are no draws in the last 11 matches between the two sides. The teams are closely locked in the head-to-head as Ipswich has 6 wins and QPR 5 wins during the period.

QPR have won their last three home matches against Ipswich with clean sheets. However, Ipswich won in 4 of the previous 6 visits to the Loftus Road, while they drew 1 and lost 1.

QPR vs Ipswich: Prediction

It is an obvious that we opt for a double chance for either sides to win in this fixture based on the previous results. The last 11 matches ended in a win for one of these teams so QPR or Ipswich to win on a double chance at the odds of 1.34 looks like a banker.

To pick an outright full-time winner for this match involves high degree of risk as none of the teams were able to maintain authority on their opponents for a prolonged period of time. QPR are currently on a three match winning run at home over Ipswich. So Ipswich could turn this around here, if the previous trend pattern has be to believed.

Full-Time Result- Ipswich to win at 3.00.
